Review Honda Integra
You can’t help but pay attention to my “bright orange” body – its official color – when I take the train.
But the Honda Integra Type S is not just trendy.
The Type S stands out the moment you slip into its sleek, slender body. After all, isn’t that what the letter S stands for – sleek, hot, sexy?
Sorry if I’m spitting out, but it’s Integra until its last polished nut and bolt. You no longer want – automatic climate control and standard power windows, CD / MP3 player, polite night light and front and side airbags for security.
Then there are cool halogen lights, rear spoiler and large electronic sunroof, creating a feeling like a sporty convertible.
Now if I’m hungry for electricity, I’ll be proud that it has six speeds, but since I’m in control, I’ll just ask, “Are you jealous?”
Down statistics. Its four-liter four-cylinder engine is not one for chewing fuel and I’m quite surprised how far the S goes without a moving ruler. Perhaps it is aerodynamics. This is a three-door door and while it can create the illusion of a cramped two-seater vehicle, the two doors are long structures that accommodate a spacious space for four people, although the two at the back have may need to be acquainted. But that is not always a bad thing.
It is luxurious and very comfortable. The interior is all black, very nice and appointed leather. Instrumentation is inconsistent, with a silver finish.
At night, it’s even better – the instruments emerge blood red, very sexy.
S has a lot of power. In fact, I found it begging more when the engine howled to go faster. But do not worry. There are ABS brakes to slow down the 17in alloy. The gear changes are smooth and the Honda has a controlled feel – there’s no slipping around or the squeak of tires.
Forget the usual stiff sports suspension (it has struts and double wishbone suspension) – this is better than I expected, softer but still safe on the road.
The only thing I could fault was the vision in the rear corners.
Like many sports numbers, it is limited by the shape of the vehicle. Fortunately, it has a large side mirror.
The letter S makes you feel special … it ruins you.
Love it or leave it
Honda Integra type S

ITS luxurious appearance.
The stereo, with its color screen, kept me engaged.
Secret compartment to hide valuable goods.
Leave it there
WHEN you’re wearing high heels, the release of the clutch can become a health hazard – it’s quite low on the inside.
It is also awkward to release the parking brake when sitting in the front of the bucket.
